The Portuguese And Norwegian Cooperation Developed 6 Axis Metal 3D Printer
Jan 02, 2019

Branch YingBu pull university institute of technology (FCTUC) and the Norwegian university of science and technology research and development partners SINTEF cooperation, developed a capable of producing the new 6 axis of metal parts 3D printing technology.3D printers can be manufactured from any Angle and plane parts, expanding the scope of the geometric complexity of the possible.


The team from the department of mechanical engineering Norberto FCTUC Pires professor coordination, assume the system components used in the manufacture of aviation and the energy industry.One of the world's largest steel suppliers, India's tata steel, have expressed interest in the technology.

3D printer is a clever combination of robot arm and synchronization of simulation system, such as Pires explains, "simulation at the same time, covers several variables and parameters", as the temperature and phase change of the material, "allowed to immediately correct any possible exception, for printing, through trial and error until you reach the required parameters."In short, their 3D printers can detect problems and dynamic adjustment of parameters in order to provide the solution.

They face obstacles including writing "no problems are allowed to generate six or more shaft axis robot trajectory" print code, and "found a way to adapt existing printing technology to this type of system - automation and integration technology."In addition, the system needs to be "can be combined with the simulation tool, part parameters of the real-time correction", Pires said.

Estimates will need 2 million euros to the 3D printer to market, so a research centre has been submitted to the European Union a project, the research center including the new university of Lisbon and Austria, Germany, Norway and Spain in the university.This technology can save manufacture and service of large complex components of the industrial company a lot of time and money, so we hope to be able to soon video demo, to arouse the interest of investors.
